I love the image of garment of mercy
Both of you , please comment about the prohibition of human touch with Covid, and how you would try to address it with your team and the individual patient
Can we hear more from Matthew about how his theological work informs his medical work, and ice versa?
Now that we have exposed the problem with linking health care insurance/access to employment, do either of you think anything will change in the U.S. going forward with regards to healthcare financing and access?
Even before the lock down I was beginning to ponder the deep vulnerability and fragility of the human experience and how that relates to the fragility of Jesus in his relationships and humanity.

When Stanley Hauerwaus spoke at the EI, he was asked what the Christian brought to hospital discussions of ethics boards that secular ethicists and humanists did not, and he responded with one word: presence. Can either of you relate to his response?
I love that idea to hold someone's hand while they're dying. Reminds me of Mother Teresa.
In the COVID units it is almost impossible for the patients to hear the doctors and nurses under N-95 masks and PAPRs. These patients are horribly isolated on so many levels.
At the very time that patient’s need solace from a chaplain or spiritual director, some hospitals won’t allow “non medical” people into the building.
